Biophysics at the Dawn of Exascale Computers. A Biophysical Society thematic meeting

Cryo-EM, X-ray laser spectroscopy, machine learning, omics and maybe soon large-scale simulations of entire cells? The ability to study bimolecular assemblies of seemingly ever-increasing size and resolution has changed the way we do biophysics. This remarkable progress has been fulled by high-performance computing systems using graphical processor unit (GPU) and very recently Tensor Processing Units (TPUs). 

The Biophysics at the Dawn of Exascale Computers thematic meeting will be held at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, in Hamburg, Germany from May 16 – 20, 2022. The meeting will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians research areas where Exascale computing will likely have a large impact, including macromolecular interactions and bottom-up structure of cells, protein folding and assembly, simulation of rare events.

Join the international biophysics community to discuss the opportunities of Exascale computing and learn how the biophysics community can prepare for the challenges such as the need to adapt computer algorithms and simulation protocols. The meeting already has an excellent line-up of speakers.

Early registration deadline is February 7, 2022.

The deadline to submit an abstract is January 21, 2022 and the  We look forward to seeing you in Hamburg!
